Lion Grüner Veltliner 2017

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!

I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try!

Nice balanced Gruner for the frequent seafood dishes in Nuuanu. 11.5 ABV organic. Good texture and a sense of lift even if not the most complex. — 8 days ago

Dürnsteiner Kellerberg Smaragd Grüner Veltliner 2013

On the nose: earth, hay, and white pepper. Pale gold. On the palate it explodes: ripe apricot, yellow peach, Meyer lemon, honey. Long finish, medium (+) acidity. 13.5% alcohol. — 5 days ago

Smaragd Honivogl Grüner Veltliner 2015

Fet och koncentrerad. Mogen frukt där skal och stjälk fått åka med. Kanderad citron, vitpeppar och mineral. Känns som flaskan är inne i ett dumt mellanläge nu, skulle nog tjäna på några till års lagring. — 9 days ago

First impression is this is like Riesling. Sweet and sour, but fruity is more than Riesling. It would match with a bit spicy cuisine. Slightly bitter. @, Vinsenble, 190815 — 10 days ago

Achleiten Smaragd Grüner Veltliner 2014

My kind of Gruner! Massive character with loads of minerals that simply excite the palate. A gorgeous, expansive wine. I see the appeal here and could drink this as often as access would allow...which, sadly, won’t allow for a lot. — 10 days ago

Loibenberg Smaragd Grüner Veltliner 2015

Sweet peas for dayzzzzz. A nearly ridiculous wine that I would only be able to tolerate in smaller doses. This will be a hit with Somms, for sure. A killer food pairing for asparagus. I like this for its authenticity... — 10 days ago
